    Strange visitors

    In the last few weeks we have had some strange unwanted visitors in the house.

    Started a couple of weeks ago with a cat strolling into my office. It belongs to a neighbour and is often hanging around the garden. Not too unusual but the start of a trend. Week later and a fox appeared in our lounge. Very quickly shown the door.

    Today a perhaps rarer sight in the house. A great spotted woodpecker in the kitchen. It was trying to fly through a closed window. The bird often feeds off our bird table, but is very timid, and the slightest movement and it flys off. Amazing that such a shy bird would come in the house, and fortunately decided not to peck its way out through the window.

    Will definitely stop leaving the back door open from now on.

    Anyone else had any unwanted visitors of the animal kind in the house ?

    A friend of mine once found a fox on their bed in their ground floor flat. Apparently it stinks like hell.

    Had a grass snake wander in. Buggering thing got underneath the freezer until it was gently coaxed out. The dog just sat there and watched it

    A ferret. It wandered in, then back out. 5 minutes later it was back, at which point I got it into the cat’s travel box. Turned out to belong to a guy a few doors away. Dutifully returned in exchange for a slab of Stella...
